Thanks, guys. 

I didn't end up using the tool, but I'm glad to know it exists.  

The problem turned out to be that I was doing all my work on the same thread as GTK, thereby blocking the run loop for the GUI. I fixed it by starting the work that the progress bar referenced on a separate thread and then using Invoke to force updates to the progress bar. 

What I eventually ended up doing was basically the advice advocated by the Responsive Applications document at http://www.mono-project.com/Responsive_Applications 

Thank you again. Your insights that the problem involved the way that GTK relates to threads led me to the correct solution.
